There were only about five members of the public who attended the public presentation of the Solar Aquatics Wastewater Project Update on Jan. 22 at the Ridge..
Kim Rink, president of Eco-Tek Wastewater Treatments, presented a model of what the greenhouse/plant being constructed in Barriere will look like, and also provided several computer-generated images for viewing.
The District’s engineer, Dave Underwood from TRUE, gave a summary of the overall status of the project in the community, and noted the construction of the Septage Receiving Facility is well underway at the end of Kamloops Street.
The District is inviting area residents to learn more about the project, and view the model and images at the municipality’s information booth in the upcoming Celebration of Rural Living Expo and Trade Show, April 27 and 28, hosted in the North Thompson fall fair facility.
People can also view the images and ask questions about the project by stopping in at the District of Barriere chambers in the Ridge.
